PHILADELPHIA (WTHR) — Surveillance video caught the moment a man used a sledgehammer to smash another vehicle and attack a passenger in Philadelphia Tuesday.

It happened in a parking lot of a business.

A man got out of a red pickup truck while holding a sledgehammer, then smashed the driver's side window of an SUV before hitting the vehicle three more times.

As the SUV drove away, a man fell out of the passenger side. The SUV stopped and the passenger limped toward it.

As he was limping away, the man with the sledgehammer hit him in the back, then hit the vehicle again.

One witness said he heard the attacker yell out, "You're cheating with my girlfriend."

Police say they can't investigate the incident until someone involved comes forward.
